Hi Suzan.V

here some lines of code that may help you:

It finds overflowed cells and puts the cursor there.

var oDoc = app.ActiveDoc

var locFlow = oDoc.MainFlowInDoc;

var OverflowFound = false;

var oTables = locFlow.GetText(Constants.FTI_TblAnchor);

for (var i = 0; i < oTables.length; i++)

        {

         var oRow = oTables.obj.FirstRowInTbl; // Zeile 2

         var oCell = oRow.FirstCellInRow; 

          

        while (oRow.ObjectValid ( ) )

            {

                var oCell = oRow.FirstCellInRow; 

                 while (oCell.ObjectValid ( ) )

                    {

                     if (oCell.Overflowed == 1)

                        {

                        var oPgf = oCell.FirstPgf;

                        var tloc = new TextLoc(oPgf, 0)

                        var locTextRange = new TextRange (tloc, tloc);

                        oDoc.ScrollToText (locTextRange);

                        alert ("Overflow");

                        OverflowFound = true;

                        break;

                        }

                   

                    oCell = oCell.NextCellInRow;

                    }   //  while (oCell.ObjectValid ( ) )

           

                if (OverflowFound) break;

                 oRow = oRow.NextRowInTbl;

            }   //  while (oRow.ObjectValid ( ) )

              if (OverflowFound) break;

    }   // for

Dear Klaus,

Thanks for your reply and i hope you can help me at this case, but your code seems not working to me

you find a sample file uploaded at below link

http://www.megafileupload.com/rsYN/Sample_file.zip

first i want the code to tell me that there is overflow text on page (1) as shown  and select both those text frames one by one

2.png

then ( and that is more important) there are overflow text on three cells as shown but i can't know that until i resize the row format from 5 to 7 or read the text and guess if the context is missing

1.png

so if you can't find those overflow text, can you create a script to to resize all tables row format and give them maximum value for ex = 100

Thanks in advance for your help

Hi Suzan,

sorry for my late response, but I'm on a business trip for the rest of the week.

Did you get any error messages?

I've just  tested the script again: it works.

I'm using FrameMaker 2015 and FrameMaker 12.

Which version do you use?

Of course, you need an active document with a table.

And then this ExtendScript runs.

When I download your file I get a virus warning.

Dear Klaus,

actually i don't get any error, but i don't see the cursor goes to the overflowed cell, so please can you attach a sample file you tested on and tell me how to post my file without seeing this virus alert

I'm using FM 10,12,15

Thanks a lot for your help and have a nice trip

The cursor is at the beginning of the cell. (ScrollToText )

I could offer you a solution, but it's only in German at the moment.

BTW: is there a reason why you don't increase the minimum height of all cells?

Hi Suzan,

this little script should solve your problems.

It sets maximum height of all tablerows to 35,56 cm which is the value when you create a new table.

var oDoc = app.ActiveDoc

var locFlow = oDoc.MainFlowInDoc;

var cMillimeter = 2.83464 * 65536;

var NewRowHeight = 355.6;   // standard value when creating a new table in mm

var oTables = locFlow.GetText(Constants.FTI_TblAnchor);

for (var i = 0; i < oTables.length; i++)

    {

    var oRow = oTables.obj.FirstRowInTbl;

      

    while (oRow.ObjectValid ())

        {

        oRow.RowMinHeight = 0

        oRow.RowMaxHeight = NewRowHeight * cMillimeter;

      

        oRow = oRow.NextRowInTbl;

        }

    }   // for

Hi Suzan,

that's right. It changes this maximum.

I've tested it several times and it worked for me.

I have to leave now to visit a fair. When I'm back I'll have a closer look.
